Retro Moments:

First Episode, 36 years ago
September 29, 1985

I was just a kid when the original MacGyver was on the air, and usually was being ushered to bed when it was coming on.  That didn't mean I didn't take notice, especially when I got a bit older and began seeing photos of Richard Dean Anderson in magazines.   I also enjoyed checking Richard out in his speedo on YouTube from some old clips of Battle of the Network Stars.

Ad Men: Jake from State Farm

'Like a good neighbour.'

Earlier this year, I received an e-mail from a blog reader asking if thought of featuring Jake from State Farm in my Ad Men series.  I'd seen 'Jake' a few times on television, but really didn't initially notice how hot he was until starting to put together this piece.

'Jake' is played by actor Kevin Miles, who began acting professionally as Kevin Mimms over a decade ago. In addition to catching Kevin as Jake, you may also have seen him on television where he appeared on shows including; Criminal Minds, S.W.A.T and Underdogs. A busy working actor, it was really his turn as Jake which really helped Miles become well known.  So well known, 'Jake' even appeared with Drake in a Super Bowl Commercial.

Everett Lee Jackson: FaVorites

Although relatively easy to find images, it was hard finding much information about model Everett Lee Jackson.  From what I could find, Jackson began his modeling career when he was 18 in the early 1950's.  At the time, he was mainly known as Cherokee due to his Native American heritage.  It was common in the 50's and 60's to give male models names which would have them stand out, as well as quickly identify them to both photographers and fans of their work.

Jackson modeled from the early 1950'ss through the mid 1960's.  He was photographed and worked with Bob Mizer from The Athletic Model Guild, (AMG) Bruce in Los Angeles, Kris Studios and Champion.  Jackson also worked quite a bit with  photographer Pat Milo. (James Patrick)
